Python, IDLE, Python-tools Gnome.

Hello everybody. I got a strange behaviour of my Python IDLE under fedora 10 (86x64) with all latest update. The IDLE has a slow response on the typing a text inside a window and after few minutes of typing it freezes completely. Surprisingly, it working just fine under KDE. Similar behaviour I see for "Eric" under GNOME or FLUXBOX but again under KDE it works just fine.

My configuration is :
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911,)
[GCC 4.3.2 20080917 (Red Hat 4.3.2-4)] on linux2
terminal returns or nothing or next:

Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1403, in __call__
return self.func(*args)
File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/idlelib/MultiCall.py", line 151, in handler
r = l[i](event)
File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/idlelib/EditorWindow.py", line 1024, in smart_backspace_event
first, last = self.get_selection_indices()
File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/idlelib/EditorWindow.py", line 984, in get_selection_indices
first = self.text.index("sel.first")
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'index'

I have another computer under FC10 but no luck it does a same thing with IDLE. Is it a bug, which I am not aware of????????

thank beforehand for any response!!!!!!
